    Sometimes they use the cutout as the dividing line for fair / foul responsibility.

    That's exactly my reaction to reading this.

    shrug.
     
    If the EJ was for contact, it will be in the report and there will be (I think) an additional fine.
     
    Usually, if the EJ is for contact, the umpire says something like, "That's a bump" during the ejection -- and it didn't seem to come up during the discussion with the manager.

  4. noumpere added an answer to a question Force at 2nd?   

    What is with these questions lately?  I know this is the "newbies" section, but really...
     
    edit a few hours later -- I got called as soon as I started my reply:  at least this particular question has some validity because tagging a person requires the tag be made with the ball (or the hand/glove holding the ball), so I don't mean the previous statement as "harsh" as it probably seems.

  5. noumpere added a post in a topic Latos Balk - On or Off the Rubber (& Joe West Music Cameo)   

    I don't think it's a "was he on or off" argument as much as it is a "did he step back or not" argument.  But, I only watched the first 15 seconds or so one time.
     
    And, I think he started his move to first before he stepped off -- but I also think I've seen similar moves not balked.  Frankly, I'd like to see more of them called for this.

    Did you get a video of this?  Almost every game is recorded by someone.

    The play you describe is no different from the more-usual double play at second.  It's still a force out at second (and at the plate) even when the BR is retired at first on the next throw.
     
    (I'm honestly wondering if this was a serious question.)

    I agree.  And, I think the poster does not understand the importance of the positioning of (in this instance) F3.
     
    With R1, R3, F3 was likely holding R1 on.  So, on the pitch, F3 likely moved a step or two fair, and maybe tried to field the ball.  If so, the ball might have gone "through or immediately by" F3, so R1 would NOT be out.
     
    Or, maybe this was LL and F3 was playing back.  In that case, R1 IS out.
     
    But, if R1 is out, the ball is dead.  Conversely, if the ball was allowed to stay live, then R1 should not have been out.  You can NEVER have the situation suggested by the OP where the runner is out for being hit by the batted ball, but the ball remains live.

    You still didn't answer the most important questions -- what rules code and where were the fielders in relation to the runner and ball?

    Duplicate thread.

    I agree we need more info.  *IF* the runner is out, then the ball is dead.  THE BR is awarded first.  Other runners return unless forced (by the BR being awarded first).
     
    And, under OBR, both the runner and the BR can be out if the interference was "willful and with deliberate intent to prevent a double play." (That's unlikely to have happened here, I think.)

  12. noumpere added an answer to a question baserunner hit by live ball   

    A couple of points here:
    1) Under OBR, "passed" means "through or immediately by" the fielder, not merely "beyond" the fielder, and the runner must be immediately behind the fielder..  Basically, if the runner could reasonably have expected the fielder to field the ball, the runner is protected if he doesn't have time to move.  BUt, if, for example, there's a biog shift on, and the runner is hiton the other side of the infield, the runner is still out.
    2) "Step and a reach" referes to interfering with the fielder, not to interfering with the ball.  The runner is always protected from (non intentional) interference on a deflected ball, no matter how far waya it is or who did the deflecting (it applies to the pitcher as well).

    Despite the various wordings, I think the ruling is the same in all codes.

    It's not an out.
     
    It's nothing, yet.  The ball will become fair or foul depending on what happens next (if it comes to rest in fair territory, or is touched in fair territory, it's fair).
     
    A batted ball hitting a bat (or helmet) in foul territory is immediately foul.

    I'd say you're wrong for FED (see below), but now right for OBR (and your first answer for OBR was wrong).
     
    For NCAA, the wording in Rule 7-6 (Batting; Fair Ball) is different from what you have above (from Rule 2 - Definitions).  The wording in Rule 7-6 DOES NOT include "equipment."  I think it's the same as OBR.
     
    NCAA:
     
    d. While on or over fair ground, touches an umpire or player; or
     
    FED:
    2.16.1 SITUATION D: B1's bunt rolls up the first-base line where it hits B1's bat that was lying on the
    ground in fair territory. The ball deflects into foul territory. Is the ball fair or foul? RULING: The ball is
    foul, provided the bat was not placed there intentionally. The bat is considered to be part of the playing
    field. (2-5-1, 2-8-1, 8-4-1d)
